This paper provides a literature review of the different approaches used for image denoising. Various approaches are studied and their results are compared to provide a better understanding of the filters used to de-noise images. It is shown that how a single image is subjected to various denoising techniques and how it can react to those filters. Statistical and mean deviation techniques used by halder et al. (2019)1 and CNN techniques used by zing et al.(2018)2 are reviewed in detail to show...

Catalytic effects of metals, which are often involved in the fabrication of silicon nitride product, on the direct nitridation of silicon have been reviewed through this study. A nitridation echancement effect has also been observed with the addition of some metals. The metals are mixed with Si in separate mass ratios before reaction. The results showed that the conversion from Si to Si3N4 increased markedly with increasing content of the catalyst. From there, it helps to reduce the reaction...

Microfibrous polycaprolactone (PCL) mats containing caffeic acid were manufactured by electrospinning technology. Electrospun PCL fibers were processed with different concentration of caffeic acid, such as 0.10, 0.25, 0.50, and 1.00% in mass (m/m). The morphologies were observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). All produced fibers exhibited random direction and different values of diameters. The caffeic acid did not significantly affect the diameters of the PCL fibers in terms of...

Systemic arterial hypertension or high blood pressure is a disease that affects many people in the world and is considered a relevant factor in establishing the cause of death. Arterial hypertension is when the pressure that the blood exerts on the walls of the arteries to move is very strong, being above the values considered normal. In addition, this disease involves hardening of the vascular walls, which makes it difficult for blood flow to pass. Therefore, the general objective of this work...
